Nordic Culture Point serves as the secretariat for the Nordic Council of Ministers’ two cultural programmes: the Culture and Art Programme and the Nordic-Baltic Mobility Programme for Culture (called The Mobility Programme). The programs are open to artists and cultural operators within all artistic and cultural forms. The programs cover a range of different types of grants, from travel grants to grants for perennial productions. The various forms of grants have different objectives, criteria and deadlines for applications. The Nordic cultural cooperation is to function as an additional input to the culture and arts of the Nordic countries and the Faroe Islands, Greenland and Åland.
